ARI Products Inc. and Tate Access Floors are committed to level raised access flooring regardless of the concrete subfloor. The New Cornell Tech building, however, posed a new challenge for ARI and Tate. Constructed with slabs sloped 25 and 47 degrees and a depressed slab more than 3’.
Cornell Tech, a multi-level technical campus of Cornell College, has tiered classrooms and work spaces from 4” – 52” finished floor heights. Included were coordination of underfloor ducting, electrical work, ramps, steps and a modification of step risers to accommodate for the desired lighting fixtures.
The project was constructed of the Tate ConCore 1250 Bolted Stringer CornerLock System for maximum stability. The pedestals were manufactured job specific with sloped bases to for support on the sloped structural slab. To accommodate ducts and structural gaps custom bridging was manufactured.
Cornell Tech has been our most difficult project to produce to date. Although there were new challenges to surpass we produced a complete leveled and structural raised access floor project.
Architect, Engineer, Construction Manager, and Cornell all agree:
Challenge made, challenge met. ARI and Tate Access Floors!
